The secure document shredding event, to be held in front of Comerica Theatre, 400 W. Washington St., in downtown Phoenix, is offered as a public service to the Phoenix community and is designed to raise awareness of identity theft prevention, hunger and recycling.
Free of charge and open to the public, the event will allow Phoenix consumers and business owners to securely destroy up to four boxes or bags of sensitive paper documents per vehicle. Additionally, volunteers from St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance will be on site to collect suggested donations of non-perishable food items. All of the paper collected at Shred Day Phoenix will be turned into pulp and recycled after being securely destroyed.
